Radiohead ruled Bonnaroo this weekend with a headlining set that drew heavily from their more recent albums King of Limbs and In Rainbows. During their performance of ” Supercollider,” the eccentric rockers gave their fans in the crowd even more reason to celebrate, as Thom Yorke dedicated the song to Jack White and appeared to hint that the two might have something in the works.
“This song is for Jack White,” Yorke said, introducing “Supercollider.” “We saw him yesterday. A big thank-you to him, but we can’t tell you why. You’ll find out.”
No one is sure what Yorke was referring to, but fans are already frothing at the mouth over a potential collaboration.
White now lives in Nashville – the nearest major city to Manchester, Tenn., where the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is held annually – and has his Third Man Records based there … so, you know, they would have had easy access to a studio if they’d been so inclined before Radiohead hopped in a vehicle for the hour-plus drive to the festival grounds.
Radiohead continue their North American tour tonight in Auburn Hills, Michigan ahead of shows in New Jersey and Canada before heading to Italy to kick off the European leg of their world tour on June 30. In November, the band will head to New Zealand and Australia for a string of sold-out shows in Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
White heads to Europe himself on June 21 to headline his own tour of the continent.
